Northwest Missouri State University Key Developments

Northwest Missouri State University Promotes Roger Von Holzen as Permanent Vice President of Information Technology

Northwest Missouri State University has named Roger Von Holzen as permanent vice president of information technology. Appointed to the position in an interim capacity by President John Jasinski in 2012 following the retirement of Jon Rickman, Von Holzen will remain the university's top officer responsible for both information technology systems and the Office of Institutional Research. Now that he is no longer interim VP, Von Holzen has handed over his CITE duties to the office's assistant director, Darla Runyon, who is also assuming responsibility for Textbook Services and North-west's distance learning programs.

Northwest Missouri State University Announces Board Appointments

Gov. Jay Nixon has appointed Dr. Patrick B. Harr (Republican), of Shell Knob, and John W. Richmond (Democrat), of Albany, to the Northwest Missouri State University Board of Regents. Both appointments must still be confirmed by the state Senate. Harr is a physician specializing in family and sports medicine at Mercy Family Medicine in Shell Knob. He spent many years practicing medicine in Maryville, where he served as team doctor for both the Maryville High School Spoofhounds and the Northwest Bearcats. Richmond is the retired president and CEO of Northwest Medical Center in Albany, a position he held for nearly 30 years. He has also held leadership positions with several health care organizations and boards. If confirmed, both men will serve terms ending Jan. 1, 2019. Harr is to replace the board's longest serving member, Doug Sutton (R) of Maryville, a retired Kawasaki Motors plant manager who joined the regents in 2001. Richardson will assume the seat occupied since 2003 by Lydia Hurst (R) of Tarkio. The term of Dr. Douglas Wycoff (D), a dentist from Cameron, also expired at the first of this year, but Nixon has yet to name his successor. Assuming Wycoff remains on the board until replaced, which he has said he will do, the board will continue to operate with six sitting members and two vacancies. The other members are Mark Hargens (D), St. Joseph, the current chairman; Gene Dorrell (R), Maryville; and Joseph Bosse (R), St. Louis.
